THURSDAY, SEPT. 28 / 11 A.M. - 5 P.M.
In our third year, we’re back with a specific focus: to reinvigorate, reenergize and connect aspirational leaders.
Consider this the nudge you need to do the things you were meant to do and be the leader you were meant to be. This is your launching point to make / it / happen.
Make / Leadership / Happen will connect you with people, ideas and opportunities to bring action to intention, and to lead thoughtfully in our community.
That voice that says it’s time to lead? Quit ignoring it.
